SILVERDALE, Wash. —

Kitsap County sheriff's deputies say a man they were trying to arrest after witnesses reported he had just graffiti-tagged a grocery store head-butted one officer and threatened to assault him.

The Kitsap Sun says ( http://is.gd/XkvWcm) court documents describe witnesses watching as the man spray-painted the front of a Safeway store in Silverdale, Wash., on Monday, then walked inside. A deputy says the man tried to elude him in the store. The officer took the man to the floor because he was concerned about a bulky object in the man's jacket. That was a bottle of gin, which the man contended he was going to pay for.

The 27-year-old Kingston man was arrested for investigation of theft, malicious mischief and resisting arrest.
